Go to to reach our voting page - or click here. There are four ways to vote, all through the voting page:

Email address and/or Facebook ID

  • Click VOTE for your selected Hero, CONFIRM VOTE (check that you’ve read and accept the Voting Disclosures), then choose either your email address or Facebook ID.
  • You may VOTE AGAIN up to 5 times a day!

To vote using both an email address and Facebook, LOG OUT (upper right), then repeat the process, using the other method. You will receive a message when you reach the maximum votes for the day.

  • You may repeat the process up to a maximum of 5 votes.


  • Click ‘Vote on Twitter. Enter your CNN Hero’s name, be sure the message includes the hashtag #CNNSUPERHERO, then tweet it. That’s the only way your tweet will count as a vote.
  • Important: You must use your Hero’s first, last or full name. Tweets that only use your Hero’s Twitter handle or organization name will not be counted.
  • To vote again: Twitter does not permit the identical message to be tweeted more than once a day. Slightly revise your message (as simple as adding an exclamation mark) or be creative and write something new!

NOTE: You will not receive a maximum vote message after 5 tweets. Any additional tweets will not be counted that day.


You can share your vote on both Facebook and Twitter. Remember to include the Hero’s name, the voting page URL ( and, when voting on Twitter, the hashtag #CNNSUPERHERO
